This Department of Education and Training (DET) guide provides important information for parents about cybersafety and cyberbullying. It suggests what parents and caregivers could do if their child is the target or is responsible for inappropriate online behaviour.
This easy-to-read brochure provides information about how to use social media in relation to comments or posts about your school community.
This overview provides a useful checklist to help review and clean up your digital footprint – the trails or traces of data left by everything you share online. This advice is easy to follow and can be used by teenagers, teachers, parents and caregivers.
The Department of Education and Training has programs to help primary and secondary students understand what they should and should not do online. You can read more about cybersafety in Queensland state schools and download eye-catching posters at www.qld.gov.au/cybersafety.
The department has its own Cybersafety and Reputation Management team that is available to all state schools. The team, made up of former police officers, policy and social media experts, deliver up-to-date and informative sessions about positive social media use.
All state schools can contact the team and request information about how they can book a cybersafety presentation for their students and community. If you would like a session for yourself or your child, please contact your school and ask them to book the Cybersafety and Reputation Management team.
